    Pros

    - Great place for junior analyst to learn and equip in-depth knowledge of accounting/finance; - Things that you learn here is fully transferable to wherever you go in manufacturing industry; you can easily shine anywhere if you have an excellent performance here - Work life balance. depends on financial cycle. In general, very comparable to other companies - Lean organization that allow analysts to shine in front of senior management; good training ground for analyst sto speak up in from up VPs - Manufacturing Ops finance is the best place to accelerate your career if you are interested into manufacturing hardware business in long run

    Cons

    - Improvement is needed in the way of leading the finance organization. Current analysts need more motivation to keep up their good work - Whether it is the right mix of focus on accounting transactions vs business analytics is a question mark.

    I worked at KLA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is basically a retirement village. Nothing much is going on. Great work life balance if you are just looking to cruise in your career.

    Cons

    No strong finance leaders in the organization, the finance management team is mediocre at best. They only think of how to advance their own career rather than building a strong finance organization. Since this is a retirement village, there are almost zero career growth and opportunities for the analysts. The attrition rate is extremely high. All the good people have left. The reporting system is old and outdated. You will not learn anything at this company. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

    Interesting product, you'll be working on world-class technology systems. Decent people and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Things move slow here - lot of red tape and meetings. The tools used by employees are outdated and new technology is generally not favored. Communication is often difficult and inefficient because teams are split between the US and India.

    Company (FaST) is not properly designing new products. Innovation is slowed down due to old culture. The division needs and desires change on the top management, but is not executing the desire.
